So yesterday I found a new addiction.
Celebrity Rehab, with Dr Drew.
I just hurt for the people who are on this show. It’s painful to watch them. Mostly, I just really, really, really feel blessed that I don’t suffer from an addiction like they do.
At the same time, I am absolutely fascinated by the things they say, their ticks, and they way they are coping with withdrawal. And also, Dr Drew? *swoon*
This season features Gary Busey, Tawny Kitaen, Rodney King, Jeff Conaway, Amber Smith, Nicki McKibbin, Sean Stewart, and Steven Adler. I’ve heard of the show – but have not actually watched it. (Mostly because I don’t have cable and rarely even watch tv -but that’s another story).
I’m going to have to keep up on the season as it progresses. Even if just to see what level of crazy is residing at the Pasadena Recovery Center. I wish them luck – and hope to see each patient progress towards health.
For the next two weeks, I am dog and house sitting for family friends. Which means I am also binging on their cable television. So I had a healthy two and a half hour introductory dose of Celebrity Rehab 2 today. (And also Princess Diaries, The Bourne Identity, and Mean Girls.)
I have to sadly admit that I’ve watched a few other reality tv shows this weekend including Paris Hilton is my BFF, The Girls Next Door and Real Chance for Love. It makes me feel even more out of touch with the dysfunction that is rampant in today’s world. Yet strangely, I can’t keep from watching more of it.
What reality TV do you get hooked on? Are there any suggestions you have for me to add to my list? (at least for the next few weeks, while I have the cable to binge on!)
